as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something that stands on lies and greed, protecting that must not be consistent with god's will. in his 2010 world day of peace message entitled "if you want to cultivate peace, protect creation," pope benedict xvi called upon the faithful, and i quote -- "to protect the environment and to safeguard natural resources and the climate, while at the same time taking into due account the solidarity we owe to those living in the poorer areas of our world and to future generations." in his inaugural mass this morning, pope francis said, and i quote -- "please, i would like to ask all those who have positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life and all men and women of goodwill, let us be protectors of creation, protectors of god's plannen scribed in nature -- plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment. as ea

headlines this friday morning. >>steve: meanwhile president obama on his way now to bethlehem. he visited israel's memorial to the holocaust victims a short time ago during the third day of his first presidential trip to israel. >>brian: we're live in jerusalem following the trip. hey, leland. >> good morning, brian. the issue from the president is not so much what he's saying. he's saying the same thing in terms of the substantive issues about iran and about a palestinian state. but more about how he is saying it. he's going out of his way to show great empathy towards the israeli people and boy is it working. front page of both daily newspapers here, you say president obama here and also on their version of the "new york times," here he says demand peace from your leaders. this is an attempt by the president yesterday in his major address not only to the israeli student population but also to the entire country that was televised to say this is my vision for what the middle east should look like. and while it may not jive exactly with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister here, this is
standard." obama, i don't think so. but the people in politics read it. particularly republicans. not just elected officials but consultants, strategists, people in government and so on read it. and then we have, we make sure that we have a great readership in the journalistic community in washington. i mean, about 400 copies on the weekend on sunday. they get one at home. and which if you get one on sunday, right, they have a lot better chance of reading it than they would if they get it in the office on monday when they are flooded with other things. so you have the political community, the journalistic community and the academic community. being at the new republic, i remember how, how widely read the new republic was in the academic community. of course, they did not like my stuff. i get letters saying why are you there? at the conservative academic community is a lot smaller, but we circulate among them, too. when you have that great readership, it helps. >> in the wikipedia site -- it talks that he possibly bought this for $1 million from rupert murdoch. why did he not want to feel?
obama made a big announcement. nominating justice department lawyer tom perez to be the next labor secretary. >> like so many americans, tom knows what it's like to climb the ladder of opportunity. his story reminds us of this country's promise. that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are, where you come from, what your last name is, you can make it if you try. and tom's made protecting that promise for everybody the cause of his life. >> i was at the white house today for the big announcement, which sparked ugly reactions from the right. >> this guy's name is tom perez, he may as well be hugo chavez. that is not an exaggeration. imagine what would happen if bush turned around and nominated the grand kliegle of the ku klux klan to a cabinet position where he would be deciding on discrimination lawsuits. that is exactly what's happened here. >> that's incredibly offensive. and now we're hearing gop senators vowing to block the perez nomination. why? because perez is a champion for voting and minority rights? it was his office that fought to block vote are i.d.
and democratic leader nancy pelosi are there representing all of us. president obama at the white house yesterday. i was there when he introduced his nominee to be the next secretary of labor tom perez. good guy good man, he'll do a great job as secretary of labor. today the president is celebrating a sort of a delayed st. patrick's day with a big lunch celebrating the patron of ireland at the united states capitol and a big reception tonight at the white house and then the president leaves for that trip to the middle east. we have lots to talk about this morning, and lots you're going to want to talk about right here on current tv. billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com you know who is coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now.

, and others had obama winning re-election, but you know why not? i thought, i thought romney was going to win. why not say so? >> october 8th, you said this in your twitter message. "the media pull out all the stops to reelect the president." did you really believe that? >> let me -- maybe they did not pull al the stops but certainly pulled out some of them. i like the way they covered the campaign. normally would you take a presidential campaign within the president is running for re-election, his word would be a big issue. they completely ignored it. the record. it was all about what he was doing in the campaign. romney, of course, wanted to make obama's record a part of the campaign and he was highly critical of it. the press didn't pay any attention to that. romney's record, they paid a lot of attention to, going back to his time at bain capital in particular which is why the obama campaign was trying to make the issue. they succeeded. basically. the obama campaign did, i mean, this was, this was not a normal election. a normal re-election of a president election in 2012. because with the
what he was doing in the campaign. romney, of course, wanted to make obama's record a part of the campaign and he was highly critical of it. the press didn't pay any attention to that. romney's record, they paid a lot of attention to, going back to his time at bain capital in particular which is why the obama campaign was trying to make the issue. they succeeded. the obama campaign did, i mean, this was, this was not a normal election. a normal re-election of a president election in 2012. because with the complicity of the press, the issue of romney and being a corporate predator and all of that had become as big or bigger an issue than obama's actual record in the first four years. >> so in reading, you get the impression you feel like you are surrounded by journalists that are all liberal? >> yeah. >> do they tell you what they think?. >> no, they used to when i was younger and was out covering campaigns al the time, but i certainly read them, and it has not changed. >> you know what the liberals would say when they are sitting here talking to you. >> yeah. >> the conserv
that president obama is wasting her money on his lavish lifestyle. where is she getting her facts? we tracked her down and asked her to see how she responded. basically, she wouldn't stop walking or running, almost. keeping them honest. we begin now with breaking news. news that just triggered military action by the united states in syria. the news tonight that the possibility that the regime in syria might be doing the one thing that could trigger american military action. might be using chemical weapons. crossing a redline that president obama himself lay down. now, they have used chemical weapons, that would leave the president with a major challenge as he heads tonight to israel. now, the suggestion that chemical weapons might have been used came a few hours ago today from mike rogers, saying there is a high probability to believe that chemical weapons have been used. dianne feinstein, the democratic colleague said today the white house has to make some kind of decision on this. jessica yellin is already in israel, she joins us by phone. jessica, you have senator feinstein a short time ago sa
